I've got my eye on a 2wd 97 f450 7.3 Diesel 5spd with a nice flatdeck. High mileage but meticulously maintained.
My issue is that with the winters along Lake Huron, I really need 4wd.
Im curious to know what parts would be necessary to convert the F450 to 4x4.
I currently drive an early 91 F350 4x4 351 Automatic.
Can I rob the Front axle, transfer case etc from the F350 for the 4x4 conversion?
What kinds of issues will I have with the gas to diesel and auto to 5 spd?
Any input is appreciated.
